Fish Out of Water

Fish Out of Water, , sculpture by Ellen Woodbury

“Fish Out of Water” is a biographical stone sculpture.

Big Life Change

This is how I felt when I first moved to Loveland, CO–truly a cartoon fish out of water.

My husband, Brian, and our 3 cats moved to Loveland, CO, in early October, 2005.  I stayed behind in California waiting for escrow to close on the house and followed in early November.

No Identity

I remember asking Brian for directions to the grocery store and having a tough time finding my way back to the house.I had no identity yet as a sculptor, and remember thinking there probably wasn’t an animator within 300 miles of where I was.


The fish is me holding my breath, hoping for acceptance in my new town and my new profession.
